GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL Technology
The GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL
membrane and is universally recognized as the most durably waterproof
and breathable fabric available in the world today, ideal for long
ocean or offshore cruising and racing.
The fabric allows moisture
vapor from inside the suit to “breathe” out, whilst stopping any sea
or rainwater getting in. This is achieved by having microscopic holes
in the membrane, large enough to let water vapor out, but much too
small to let water droplets in.
Incorporated into the Musto HPX Jacket and Smock is Stretch HPX
fabric which is exclusive to Musto. Stretch HPX uses a
membrane in a three layer laminated fabric. This
revolutionary fabric has an elasticity of 30%. The result is the least
restrictive, most breathable fabric for foul weather gear available.
